Answer:

#rho=1.84gcolor(white)(l)L^-1#

Explanation:

First, we need to find the mass of #"Kr"# by using the equation:

#m/M_r=n#, where:

  • #m# = mass (#g#)
  • #M_r# = molar mass (#gcolor(white)(l)mol^-1#)
  • #n# = number of moles (#mol#)

#m=nM_r#

#m("Kr")=n("Kr")M_r("Kr")=0.176*83.8=14.7488g#

#rho=m/V=14.7488/8=1.8436~~1.84gcolor(white)(l)L^-1#
